Outside Scholarships

Scholarship Search Engines

If you would like to search for additional outside scholarships, check out these links to scholarship search engines:

If you receive aid from private outside sources, these funds will be coordinated with College-administered awards. These include outside scholarships and tuition benefits. The total aid received by students from all sources cannot exceed the student's demonstrated need.

Reporting Funds From Outside Sources

When you receive scholarship funds from sources outside Pomona, they must be reported to us so we can incorporate them into your financial aid package. This includes tuition benefits paid on your behalf. (See more on tuition benefits and on our policies page.)

Helping You Meet Your Need

If you are on financial aid, our policy is to use the full amount of your outside awards first to replace your student contribution, then your term-time job expectation:

  1. Reduce the standard student contribution ($1,900 for Freshmen)
  2. Reduce the student work award ($2,800)
  3. Reduce the expected parent contribution (amount will vary from student to student)
  4. Reduce Pomona College Scholarship

Please note: Some outside scholarship organizations have rules that are more restrictive, when that is the case, we must comply with the request of the outside scholarship organization.
